After a period of closure for exciting expansion work, Site reopened in September 2018, promising to deliver a programme of even more excellent international contemporary art to even more people in Sheffield.
Exhibitions at Site are always thought-provoking and immersive, often fun and interactive, and they tend to keep us coming back time and again throughout their run. Its talks and events are a great way of getting even more stuck in to the ideas explored by each exhibition, while its annual residency season offers the rare chance to nosey in on contemporary art in the making. Stocked with donations from Sheffield's creative community, Site's X Libris bookshelf, meanwhile, is the only place we know of where you can pick up a book personally recommended by Jarvis Cocker.
Site Gallery is also home to the Society of Explorers, a collective of 14-to-19-year-olds who meet up every Wednesday evening to chat, make and curate art. The society members are an integral part of Site, and they didn’t let the gallery’s closure for expansion stop them from producing their exciting arts programme. Instead, they took art to the streets in their own customised van – and there’ll be lots more to look forward to from them now that the gallery has reopened. Find out more in our Meet the Locals Q&A with the Explorers.
Site Gallery's Art Van features in a short film we made with Sheffield Hallam Uni, alongside a bunch of the city's other top cultural attractions – watch below.
